Episode 29 Neale James Documentary Wedding Photographer

Episode 29 Neale James Documentary Wedding Photographer

Welcome to Episode 29 where we speak with the super talented smooth talking Documentary Wedding Photographer who's shot nearly 900 weddings so far! Neale is also film maker, voice over artist and Podcasting demon Neale James.

Neale originally came from the glorious world of Radio, where he and his smooth mellow voice graced the airwaves of Radio 1 for many years.

We have to say Neale is one talented and very busy man, he’s a busy documentary wedding photographer, a voice over artist, and he also runs 2 podcasts. One of which many of you will know as the Fujicast, which he hosts with his fellow partner in crime, and Fujifilm X Photographer Kevin Mullins.

On top of that still manages to host a daily podcast called ‘Photography Daily Podcast’ and even edits podcast shows for others.

We don’t know how he does it!

There’s no way we can cover all of Neale’s exploits in one podcast, so in this episode we try to understand a little about Neale and his work as a Documentary wedding Photographer.

We get the low down on how many weddings he photographs, how he does it, why he does it, and persuade him to share some of his methods and secrets, of his business and shooting techniques.

Of course we cover what kit he’s using for all his work, and also explore his ‘Photofilm’ product which he put together many years ago, and find out why it’s such a success!

Don’t forget, we have our fun mid show ‘Rapid Fire Round’, where we put Neale on the spot for a quick fire 10 questions, that may not always relate to photography and can also have some very bizarre answers..

 

You can see and listen to all of Neale’s work on the links below.

Episode 26 COVID-19 Stay Creative and Create at Home

Episode 26 COVID-19 Stay Creative and Create at Home

  

First off, we want to say among all the chaos we are all enduring at the moment with this terrible global pandemic, we hope everyone is staying safe and well.

Our thoughts and well wishes also go out to all those directly affected by the COVID-19 virus.

 

In this episode, Wayne & Jake we briefly touch on the impact Covid-19 has had on all of us, and how its affected our business as Photographers and creatives.

 

In these current times of ‘lock down’ where most of us are in the ‘Stay at Home’ situation how do we stay creative and what can we do from home to remain creative as well as to help us keep a healthy mind. We know as creatives we get quite twitchy when we can’t get our creative jig on.

 

Join us as we discuss some of the things we’ve been doing to keep our creative minds occupied, turning our ‘should do’s’ into ‘have done’s’ and our ‘I want to do’s’ into ‘I’m doing them’.

 

We talk some about some serious stuff, some business stuff and some fun stuff too….

 

I think we all need to do something to make us laugh during these times, and we all know laughter can certainly help lift the mood….

 

Have fun with this one and remember, STAY IN AND STAY SAFE! - Our thoughts go out to everyone and thanks for being staying tuned in to our podcast.

 

Remember, if have a question about anything Photography or Video/Cinema related, we’d love to hear them, you can send your questions to podlamania@gmail.com

Episode 22 Wayne Johns & Jake Hicks FILM IS NOT DEAD

Valentines Day Special with just Wayne Johns and Jake Hicks talking about everything analogue. Is film really dead?

Join Wayne and Jake as They discuss what role film and older analogue cameras has in todays photography market. Why should you pick up an old film camera? What are the benefits of going medium format over 35mm? Which medium format film camera should you jump in with?

We also get a little technical on the process involved of actually shooting film. What do we need to be aware of when shooting film over digital. Elements many modern photographers take for granted like adjusting the ISO, auto focus, White balance, and of course actually SEEING the image afterwards. How do we get some digital, sharable files from our film shots.
All of theses elements are major considerations in film, but are there actually any benefits to be had from shooting film beyond the simple ‘challenge’ itself? We take a step back from digital ‘perfection’ for a moment and embrace the ‘happy accidents’ that shooting with film can offer, and with it, the inevitable creativity that comes with that. If you’re feeling like your creatively and inspiration is waning, maybe it’s time to be inspired by film once again.

We also take a moment at the end to answer any listener questions with regards to film, but if you have any other questions about film and analogue that weren’t covered in this episode, we’d love to hear them.

Episode 21 Alastair Jolly Lets talk Smugmug, Flickr and Smugmug Films

Episode 21 Alastair Jolly Lets talk SmugMug and Flickr

Alastair Jolly used to be a full time Wedding Photographer for 16 years, then left the industry, over 8 years ago, to take on the role of Global Marketing Manager for SmugMug, the very well known software company that provides website building and hosting services for Photographers and creatives.

A couple of years ago SmugMug purchased, or saved as Alastair liked to put it, the very well known photo social and sharing site Flickr.

Wayne and Jake dive a little into Alastair’s life as a photographer, we find out if being Scottish means you naturally like whisky, but we really get stuck into the world of SmugMug and Flickr.

Alastair tells us that both platforms are certainly very different and both offer users different tools for different things, but both support and compliment each other very well.

We were interested to see what SmugMug offers its users in terms of a website building and hosting platform and how easy it can be to create a beautiful looking website to share with the world and why it’s important to have that presence, and how they incorporate a print selling service into your website, than can help increase your profits.

Flickr are getting an upgrade, and we want to find out what’s happening, when and what it means for its 10’s of millions of users. Will the 2 platforms merge? Let’s find out!

Another thing that's come to our attention on the scene is SmugMug Films, let’s get into that one for sure, what’s it about and where can we see it…

SmugMug has been generous and given us a promo code for all our listeners; which will give you a massive 25% OFF- so if you’re in the market for a new website that's easy to put together and look really nice then follow the link below to take advantage of that one.

Episode 006_Bradley Michael Photographer - I see the world of Colour in Black & White

In this episode of Podlamania your hosts Wayne Johns & Jake Hicks Talk to Indiana based Wedding & Portrait Photographer Bradley Michael who tries to explain to us how he shoots and edits his world of colour in Black & White due to being almost completely colour blind.

We try and get our heads around how Brad, translates how he sees colour before he presses that shutter button but then even more confusing for us is how he then applies that in his retouching stages, and gets his colours looking so nice..

As people that have always seen colour its really hard to get your head around not seeing it to understand where brads coming from. Its certainly given him some challenges and he finds ways around them.

It left us scratching our heads a little but we left holding the upmost respect for Brad to be able shoot and use colour in the beautiful the way that he does, what a man with an amazing set of skills and talent.

 
Keep an ear out for Episode 007 - Where we speak to Female Beauty, Commercial, Editorial Photographer iulia David
